Perez (shoulder) was recalled by the Tigers on Monday.
The move is purely procedural with the regular season over. Perez spent the season on Low-A Lakeland's roster, though he pitched just 7.2 innings while missing most of the season with a shoulder issue.
Perez's MRI on his sore shoulder revealed nothing worse than minor inflammation Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Perez returned to the injured list Sunday, the place where he's spent most of his time since joining the Tigers in August of 2017. His next steps are not yet clear.
Perez returned to the injured list with High-A Lakeland with another shoulder injury Sunday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
Perez had only just returned from the injured list Tuesday before returning there for the third time this season. The 21-year-old has made just nine starts since joining the Tigers in August of 2017.
Perez (shoulder) was activated from the injured list at High-A Lakeland on Tuesday.
Shoulder tendinitis delayed the start of Perez's season until mid-May, and he wound up right back on the injured list with shoulder inflammation after just a single start. Injury worries will remain for quite some time, as he's thrown all of 23.1 innings since August 2017.
Perez's placement on High-A Lakeland's 7-day injured list Sunday was due to right shoulder inflammation, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
As suspected, Perez's latest setback is related to the right shoulder issue that ended his 2018 campaign in July and kept him on the shelf up until last week of the current season. Since coming over from Houston in the August 2017 trade that sent Justin Verlander to the Astros, Perez has tossed just 23.1 innings in affiliated ball.
High-A Lakeland placed Perez on its 7-day injured list Sunday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
The Tigers haven't provided an explanation behind Perez's move to the injured list, but the 21-year-old likely has experienced a setback in his recovery from the left shoulder injury that prevented him from making his 2019 debut until this past week. The Tigers may err on the side of caution and hold him out beyond the minimum seven days if he failed to clear a recovery hurdle.
Perez (shoulder) tossed four innings and gave up one run on four hits and three walks while striking out three Wednesday in High-A Lakeland's 9-4 win over Clearwater.
It was an encouraging debut from Perez, whose start to the season was delayed by a bout with shoulder tendinitis. He pumped in 40 of his 66 pitches for strikes and fared better than he had in any of his four turns with Lakeland in 2018, when he posted a 7.94 ERA and 2.07 WHIP over 11.1 innings. The Tigers will likely monitor the 21-year-old's workload carefully this season, but it can be viewed as a positive that the shoulder injury is now behind him.
Perez (shoulder) is scheduled to come off the minor-league injured list to start Wednesday for High-A Lakeland, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
Perez has been sidelined by right shoulder tendinitis since late March but is set to make his 2019 debut Wednesday. The 21-year-old struggled through four starts with the Flying Tigers last season, posting a 7.94 ERA, 2.03 WHIP and 9:8 K:BB across 11.1 innings.
Perez will miss 4-to-6 weeks with right shoulder tendinitis.
It's concerning to see Perez's shoulder already acting up, as his 2018 campaign was ended prematurely in late July due to shoulder inflammation. He also battled lat issues both last season and in early March. The Tigers will likely be very cautious with the 21-year-old this season after he was limited to just seven starts last year.
Perez (shoulder) was optioned to High-A Lakeland on Friday.
Perez made one spring training appearance before being sidelined with a stomach virus and subsequently experiencing spasms in his right trapezius muscle. The 21-year-old has been playing long toss but has yet to be cleared for mound work. Perez had a 7.84 ERA over only 11.1 innings at Lakeland last season, so it's unsurprising to see him return to that level and start the season with the Flying Tigers.
Perez (shoulder) played catch out to 120 feet Tuesday, but hasn't been cleared to resume throwing off a mound, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Perez made one Grapefruit League appearance before dealing with a stomach virus and then experiencing a spasm in his right trapezius muscle. The 21-year-old is optimistic that the worst of the injury is behind him now that he's resumed throwing, but given where he's at in his recovery along with the fact that he's not a serious contender for an Opening Day job, it's unlikely he'll pitch again during the Tigers' exhibition slate.
Perez was held out of Saturday's game against the Braves due to an upper trap spasm, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
The Tigers don't believe the issue to be a big deal, but they held the young pitcher out as a precaution nonetheless. Still, the injury is potentially worrisome as Perez was limited to just 19.1 innings last season due to a lat strain and shoulder inflammation.
Perez (stomach) was cleared to resume full workouts Wednesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Perez reported to camp without any limitations but was sidelined for the past three days after experiencing acute stomach pain. As anticipated, it didn't prove to be a major setback for Perez, who should be ready to make his Grapefruit League debut at some point within the next week.
Perez has been out since Sunday with acute stomach pain, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
The exact nature of the injury is unclear, but the issue doesn't seem to be muscle-related. The team ran tests Tuesday to determine the cause of the pain.
Perez (shoulder) had his contract selected from High-A Lakeland on Monday.
Perez was added to the 40-man roster as the Tigers looked to protect the young right-hander from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. He covered just 11 innings for Lakeland in 2018 thanks to lat and shoulder injuries -- the second of which was season-ending. Perez has since made a full recovery from both issues and should report back to High-A or to Double-A Erie to begin the 2019 campaign.
Perez was placed on the 7-day disabled list due to right shoulder inflammation, Emily Waldon of The Athletic Detroit reports.
Perez sits with an ugly 7.94 ERA and 2.07 WHIP with nine strikeouts across 11 innings at High-A Lakeland this season. He'll be shut down for the remainder of the season following the injury.
Perez has allowed two earned runs on seven hits and five walks over 5.2 innings in two starts for High-A Lakeland since coming off the disabled list.
A lat injury interrupted the beginning of Perez's season, as it took the young righty until June 25 to make his first rehab appearance. He came off the DL officially on July 10, but he's struggled to a 2.12 WHIP in two starts with Lakeland. The organization will likely want to see Perez string together a few good outings before moving him up to Double-A Erie. He topped out at Double-A Corpus Christi with the Astros. The 20-year-old is considered one of the Tigers' best pitching prospects.
Perez (lat) is off the disabled list and will start Tuesday for High-A Lakeland, Emily Waldon of The Athletic Detroit reports.
It's not a surprise that Perez was activated, as he had made three rehab starts already, but it is a bit of a surprise that he was activated at High-A and not Double-A, where he finished the 2017 season. Perez, who had been on the disabled list with a lat injury all season, is one of the Tigers' best pitching prospects and could quickly force a promotion to Double-A Erie.
Perez (lat) will continue a minor-league rehab assignment Saturday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
Perez pitched in a minor-league contest earlier this week, tossing a pair of innings during his first appearance in a live game since spring training. The right-hander will likely require at least one more outing before beginning his 2018 campaign with Double-A Erie.
Tigers general manager Al Avila said Sunday that Perez (lat) is unlikely to return to game action until July, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Perez has been throwing off a mound for more than a week, but with the 21-year-old having been sidelined since mid-March with the right lat strain, the Tigers are inclined to proceed slowly with him. The right-hander will likely spend the next few weeks building up his pitch count through bullpen and live-batting practice sessions and simulated games before assigning him to a minor-league affiliate. Once Perez is formally activated from the 7-day disabled list, he'll likely report to Double-A Erie after finishing 2017 at that level as a member of the Astros organization.
